Take Me Home to the Mountains
Talented Erica Campbell, a country-gospel singer and songwriter, stars in this unique autobiographical family film of drama, humor, pathos and inspiration.
This is an autobiographical account of one family moving from the city to a remote country setting. Erica Campbell tells the story of her family’s struggles to adapt to a country lifestyle with its trials, failures and successes. The entire film is presented from her inimitably feminine point of view. In her introductory narrative, for example, she emphasizes her reluctance to trade the comforts of Los Angeles for the primitiveness of country living, perfering to remain a “Hot House Flower” – a characteristic that accounts for much of the film’s charm.
As the story unfolds and ten years pass, Erica learns such country ways as milking the goats, making raw milk, butter and cheese, baking whole grain bread and preserving the annual garden goodies. When her husband periodically goes out on the road to earn a living as a film lecturer, leaving Erica in charge, she inexplicably experiences near disasters and crises with which she heroically copes. This film shows the determination of a family set on making a go of country living with all its ups and downs. This is a very family friendly video and one that the entire family can enjoy together.
